OWON Smart Energy Gateway

Model Number: SEG-X7
Product Description: All-In-One USNAP Modular Energy Gateway with ZigBee/Wi-Fi/Z-Wave/RF/3G

 
Main Features
Smart Meter Interoperability

  • ZigBee Connectivity: Compliant with ZigBee SEP 1.x
  • AMI Compatibility: Interfaces with AMI (Advanced Metering Infrastructure) platforms such as Trilliant, Silver Spring, Itron, Elster, etc. to retrieve energy data and deliver demand response commands.
  • High Resolution Data Acquisition: The gateway is able to poll the meter data as fast as possible given a meter type.

Home-Area-Network Integration

  • Smart Energy Devices: Connects smart energy devices such as smart thermostat, smart power plugs, smart appliances, in-home Display, load-control devices, etc. using the ZigBee SE profile.
  • Home Automation Devices: Connects home-automation devices such as lighting, smart power plugs, door sensors, smoke detectors, IP cameras, etc. using the ZigBee HA profile or RF433MHz.
  • Mobile Devices: Connects to smart phones and tablets via WiFi-to-gateway or Web portal to facilitate active user involvement.

Wide-Area-Network Accessibility

  • Internet Accessibility: Connects the HAN to the Internet via Ethernet-Broadband or 3G-Direct allowing two-way data sharing with the Wide Area Network.
  • AMI WAN Accessibility: Extends the HAN to the utility AMI wide area network through the smart meter allowing demand response control and data management from the utility back office.
  • Cloud Server: Performs compatibly with commercially available analytics tools and portals accessible through the cloud server.
  • Remotely Access to Real-Time Energy Data: Allows remote monitoring and real-time management of energy data through an Internet connection from anywhere in the world.

Energy Information Display, Storage and Exporting

  • Real-time Indication: Uses luminous signs to indicate the TOU period and instantaneous power consumption level.
  • Deep Memory Storage: Caches high-resolution historical data (one data per second) for up to one year, or hour-to-hour energy data up to 10 years.
  • Versatile Data Exporting: Stores all data locally in universal format and able to transfer data via Ethernet, wireless connectivity or USB port.

Advanced Features Highlight

  • Modular Design: Possesses high extensibility to versatile connectivity standard.
  • CEA-2045 (USNAP) Slot: Allows future hardware expansion including Wi-Fi, cellular radio, Z-Wave, various AMI radio, etc.
  • Software / Firmware Upgrade: Upgradeable through smart meter ZigBee OTA / Internet / USB port / LAN port.
  • Remote Operation: Supports diagnosis, debugging and software / firmware upgrade remotely
  • Industrial Standards: Supports OpenADR for utilities; supports Green Button Data
